The Shuttling Heart!!!

The Shuttling Heart!!! short poem

The Moment you walk in with the shuttle racket;

My deserted street welcomes with a bouquet!!!

Along with the cork, you bring liveliness too here;

As you settle to serve, the winds obey your move!!

I see you there… Busy with the badminton game

Confused I am, to wave a “hi” or gently pass-by!!!

I deliberately walk slowly, to look at you for long;

Observing you chasing the cork as the winds blow!!

Every time you jump, even the clouds blush, I feel

Even the wind manipulates aptly to make you look lovely!!!

I tried to hear the words you utter while playing

Hardly had I got any word… but only a song!! Mind boggling!!!

Then, I decided to watch your expressions to guess its meaning;

Surprise to me!!! Heard a violin tone of excitement!! It’s you!!

I wished to fill the moment with something lovely;

Winds heard me..Now, showers of bougainvillea over you fully!

Thanks to you, the cork shuttles and so is my heart!!

You won’t let the former down; wish you be my savior too!!!

When I come very close to you, the magic begins!!

Every other thing turns static; it’s you and me alone active!!

Now I try opening up my heart to you, as you take a pause;

Trying hard to save myself from melting for You looking at me!

Now, I am hit by something light… the cork; reality resumes;

Cute apologies from you, me yearning for more such hits!!!!

I gently pass with a smile without talking to you!!!

Poor you!! Considering the smile as forgiving!!

And my heart exactly knows what it is!!!

And it happily continues to shuttle!!

My Heart’s Heart

My Hearts Heart short poem

Empty Pockets And A Heart Full Of Gold

Empty Pockets And A Heart Full Of Gold long poem

I have empty pockets, and a heart full of gold. A family of eight, and friends new and old. I have blisters and bruises and cuts on my hands, no food for my family, and no wealth in my land.
